What is the federal minimum wage?

The current federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour; it was raised from $6.55 to $7.25 on July 24, 2009. Keep in mind that 29 states plus Washington, D.C., currently have minimum wages that exceed the federal minimum wage. In those states, employers must pay the state minimum wage rather than the federal minimum wage.
